Tatsenshini Gear Rentals/logistics

We are looking at a Tatsenshini trip next summer. I was curious whether there were any gear rentals / Grand Canyon type Outfitters up there. Any other beta on logistics would be appreciated also.

We did a commercial trip with Sobek (at Haines) many years ago. The end of the trip has complicated arrangements getting taken out of Dry Bay on the Alsek with bush pilots up the coast to the airport at Yakutat. Wild river, and beautiful. Take lots of rain gear and your Xtratufs. The farther down the river we went, the colder and wetter it got.

Tatshenshini River Guide

A book by Russ Lyman, Joe Ordonez, Mike Speaks - "The complete guide to the Tatshenshini River Including the Upper Alsek River". Is a good start. Lots of information - some a little dated maybe but a good place to start. It covers pretty much everything including permits, logistics and detailed description of the river.

The whitewater in the Canyon is for real. Narrow and fast with real holes, tight corners and walls. Not overly difficult but you will be pretty remote. Solid class III going to IV at higher levels. Most of river is just big, fast and cold. Wonderful trip. Alsek lake is amazing.

Good place to start. Shadow Lake Expeditions: raft rentals&wilderness trips in the Yukon phone (867) 393-2232). Or Alaska River Outfitters | Haines Alaska (phone 907 766 3307)

Too many options to list here but these folks should be able to help. When we did it we were self contained except shuttle driver between Dalton Post and Haines. We took 12 days - included 3 layovers. We used Yakutat Air out of Yakutat at Dry Bay. Worked well but not cheap. Good Luck.

Call PRO in Flagstaff. They used to have a Tatshenshini rental concern going and could probably hook you up.
